We always get a good meal at this restaurant and the service has been very good. The crab pretzel is a fun dish and tastey. You will not be disappointed.

While visiting Glen Burnie, we stopped at The Olive Tree at the suggestion of a friend. We were served by Ashley, who was a most delightful and helpful host. She took the time to engage us in conversation and to offer us several local tips and information about the area. The interior of the restaurant is clean and in good... More

Took my mother there to meet an old friend of hers for lunch. We were promptly greeted and seated. The waitress seemed a little aloof or confused, but was very pleasant. I tried to order a crispy chicken salad but she insisted that salad and bread came with the entrees. I couldn't convince her, so I just went with it... More

We've eaten here many times over the past few years and have always enjoyed it. Great atmosphere, really good food, friendly and competent wait staff. Our favorite meal at the Olive Tree is spaghetti with meat sauce. We've never had a dish here that wasn't good, but the spaghetti is special to us. It tastes like what we make at... More

Great dining experience! The food is always fresh! We use to go in and order crabs cakes and a pizza, we kept suggesting to make this a staple on the menu. They tried it and it was a hit! Even if you make homemade pizza try adding crab cake on you! Piña colda is very good. Music is nice, mostly... More
